It's widely known already that HTC is holding a global press conference on May 6th to announce something big but so far, it's unknown what HTC is going to announce. Speculation are floating around that it might be HTC's first Android aka Google phone, or it might be some new Windows Mobile smartphones or maybe just HTC's TouchFLO v2 aka "Manila".
In any case, a recently unveiled photo shows three so far - more or less - unknown (most likely) HTC smartphones. While on the top row we see the HTC TyTN II, the HTC Touch Cruise and the HTC Touch, on the lower row we have 2nd from left the HTC P3470 but left and right to it at least 2 unknown devices:

Clearly, the left smartphone shows the HTC typical Windows Mobile phone-pad while the 2nd from right seems to feature TouchFLO v2/Manila.

Not that I believe in a HTC Omni release anymore but could the left device with the keyboard (an at least updated) HTC Omni and isn't the right device to the P3470 looking like T-Mobile's recently unveiled MDA compact IV? Maybe above we see the new HTC devices, the Bluetooth SIG unveiled recently which are called the HTC Diamond and HTC Raphael? Whatever the devices above are, I hope we will learn more next month.

UPDATE: Looks like the lower left and right devices are the same - on the left with the keyboard slide-out and on the right with the keyboard slide-in. If so, we would talk about two new devices only (while I first thought the two devices on the right might be the same).

Do you have a higher quality copy of that image I could get a look at? Somethine is piqueing my interest on the two bottom right phones.

No, I'm sorry - I don't have. I got this photo from Mobile Review where a user posted it anonymously. I know what you are thinking, that one of the right devices might be the T-Mobile Shadow II, right?
But I've just updated my article above and it seems that the right and left device are the same - one with the keyboard out, the other with the keyboard in.
